Over 100 Tajik ISIL Members Killed in Syria, Iraq

1 August 2015 14:48



More than 100 Tajik nationals have been killed in Syria and Iraq fighting alongside the ISIL terrorist group, Tajikistan’s chief prosecutor said.
According to Tajikistan’s Avesta news agency, Yusuf Rakhm Ahmadzoda told a press conference in Dushanbe on Friday that there are about 30 to 40 Tajik women following their husbands to Syria and Iraq, adding that “we couldn’t exactly say they are fighting there or not, but we know they went to Syria and Iraq with their husbands”.

Criminal proceedings won’t be instituted against them if they return to Tajikistan, he said.

Ahmadzoda said that he met on Thursday with a Tajik woman who stayed in Syria together with her husband for a year.

“Her husband was fighting alongside the ISIL militants and was wounded in battle. Nobody provided assistance to him and he died. After his death, the woman fled Syria through Turkey and Tajik diplomats helped her to return home,” the chief prosecutor said.

According to Tajikistan’s Interior Ministry, 519 Tajiks are fighting in Syria and Iraq alongside the ISIL militant group, 150 of them were killed and 35 returned home.

The ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently control a shrinking part of Syria and Iraq. They have threatened all communities, including Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Ezadi Kurds and others, as they continue their atrocities in Iraq.

Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and some Persian Gulf Arab states for the growing terrorism in their country.

The ISIL has links with Saudi intelligence and is believed to be indirectly supported by the Israeli regime.
